DIT Presents 'The Magic Flute'
The DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama production of Mozart’s classic opera ‘The Magic Flute’ opened on Friday with a gala performance attended by President Mary McAleese. The show runs until Friday October 11th in the newly refurbished Gleeson Theatre in DIT Kevin Street, Dublin 8.
The Magic Flute is the last opera Mozart completed and more than two hundred years later it continues to be one of the most popular of all operas. This production will be performed exclusively by the students of the Conservatory of Music and Drama and will showcase the opera stars of the future.
On the surface The Magic Flute is a simple fairy tale, with a prince and his bride to be, a wicked queen, a wise father figure and a comic duo. One of the central themes is that love is the most important thing in life and that with love, people can fulfill their dreams.
Some of Mozart’s most beautiful and sublime music was written for The Magic Flute and this exciting, lavish 21st century production will be a ‘must see’ for all music lovers.
This production of the Magic Flute, which is performed by the students of the Conservatory of Music and Drama, is made possible through collaboration across all areas of DIT drawing on the diverse and creative expertise of students and colleagues.
